Gus Dean is set to return with Venturini Motorsports for the 2024 ARCA Menards Series season opener at Daytona, but that’s not the only time he’ll be with the team for 2024.

The 29-year-old driver will be joining VMS for a limited schedule after a successful five-race stint last year, which included runner-up finishes at Talladega Superspeedway and Michigan International Speedway. Dean managed three top-10 finishes overall in his five starts.

For 2024, he will pilot the No. 55 Toyota Camry at Daytona, Talladega, Charlotte, Iowa, Salem, and Michigan.

“I am thrilled to return to the Venturini Motorsports team in 2024 again,” said Dean. “We have built a great foundation together over the past two years. We inched closer to Victory Lane with two runner-up finishes last year, and I know that we can come out of the box swinging at Daytona, turn our success into checkered flags, and get ourselves a win or two throughout the year.”

The Bluffton, South Carolina native joined the team back in 2022 where he earned six top-fives and seven top-10s and tested with the team back in January.

He joins fellow VMS drivers Jake Finch, Toni Breidinger, Amber Balcaen, and Kris Wright as part of the team trying for the 100th win as an organization.

“Love Gus,” said team owner Billy Venturini.

“He is a lot different than most of our drivers. He has a great attitude, always upbeat. He brings a solid performance every single race. You look at his results – they have been steady and sound. He’s a wonderful person to have and carries veteran leadership,” he added.

“The Venturini Motorsports team really welcomed me with open arms the last two seasons, and they continued to make me feel like I was a member of their family. That is important to me,” Dean continued on.

You can catch Dean’s return to Daytona with VMS live on FS1 on February 17th at 1:30 PM ET.
